Anyone ever heard of this group before? The FTRA. Freight train riders of America, AKA (Fuk the Reagan Administration). I saw a special not too long ago about these guys on A&E. They are drifters that hop trains all over the country, stealing, killing, and doing all sorts of drugs. To become a member, 3 senior members must piss on a black bandana which you must wear on your neck from that day forward! Nasty ass people! Just wondering if anyone else ever saw the documentary. it was messed up

Investigative Reports: Murder on the Tracks (on A&E)
Airs Wednesday, February 9 at 9pm ET/6pm PT
From the Civil War to the Great Depression, over four million people rode America's freight trains living the hobo life; however, a current trend shows true hobos are being replaced by criminals and gangs, who are turning America's railways into a haven of crime. Investigative Reports: "Murder on the Tracks" examines how novice rail riders who hop trains for sport have become the prime targets of a mysterious fraternity of rail riders known as FTRA—a group that evolved from a loose-knit network of hobos into a violent gang terrorizing the rails and preying on the "civilians" who wander into their world. Veteran hobos named Guitar Whitey, Frog, and Redbird Express help put the history of freight hopping into perspective, while the new generation of rail-riders—young kids who seem unconcerned about taking their lives in their hands—tell the tragic tales of some who sought romance and excitement on the rails, but instead found themselves on the last ride of their life.
